Blues are looking to make a swoop for 17-year-old Edouard Michut from PSG. PSG value and rate Edouard highly amid his short stature and compare the teenager to Marco Verratti, while interest in the teenager is high across Europe, according to the Spanish outlet.

Blaugrana are in advanced negotiations to sign the young prodigy but Chelsea and Man City are also reportedly among the clubs keen to snap him up. The report explains that Edouard is currently on a youth deal and is yet to sign a pro contract with the Parisian club.

But it is believed that the London giants are looking to make a last-ditch swoop for the young midfielder and intend to add the youngster to their current crop of young stars at Stamford Bridge.

Bundesliga clubs RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund are also mentioned by Don Balon as being interested in signing Edouard who is one of French football’s brightest prospects.

Still, the London giants could be an attractive destination for top young talent at the moment due to Frank Lampard’s willingness to promote and develop youth.

The Catalan giants, however, also have a fine record in that department and are one of the historically biggest clubs in the world, so would be hard for anyone to turn down.
